|Robert Wood, right,
with his husband,
John Boyd wrote up a fantastic tribute to Robert Wood yesterday in honor of Rev. Wood's 89th birthday. John and I have been in conversation regularly in the past week or so about the collection of Wood's papers that have been on deposit with us for several years, and about Wood's book, Christ and the Homosexual. These papers have been under access restrictions while his biography remained unpublished. However, Rev. Wood has decided that the time has come to lift that restriction and offer his work to everyone.
As John optimistically wrote, I am going to try to make this collection ready for the public this week. I have a few folders to sort out and the finding guide to polish up. So, do keep an eye on this blog or our website where we will announce its official publication.
